Malt beverages of any kind aren't my thing, I may be young, but no one deserves this. Spend a few more bucks and get something a little better, like Bud.

Put this beer in Winchell’s fridge on the first weekend of grad school. It took four years for Vaughn to finish. His reward for finishing first. An even “older” English. We all sampled. Can’t imagine it improved much.

From Jul 2008 This poured a clear bright yellow with a quickly disappearing head of foam. Cornish notes dominate the nose and overall it has that sweet smell that is typical for the style. The corn is in the taste and there's some bitterness there but when I finish a sip, I'm left with a rather nasty taste in my mouth. The body is as thin as one can get and I find it really hard to continue with the session, even without taking the abv in the equation. I'm just glad I'm drinking this *cold*. Not worth a retry....ever!!

It's been a long while. Checking on things I haven't rated. This beer was both a bad decision to drink and a drink for which to make bad decisions, malty frightening corn.

Needless to say, it's not for your picky rich kids, great taste for its price, golden in color and best in glass bottle.

This one is for the brothers who couldn’t be here with us. If you going to do a 40 you might as well do it right and this is it. Comes in a clear plastic bottle ( I liked the glass better), I unscrew the top, stick it in a brown bag and drink it that way. Color? Yellow. Head? You’ve got to be kidding. And I don’t smell it, I drink it. The taste has always been decent. Corn, doughy sort of and an interesting sweetish finish. Sometimes it isn’t the destination, it is the journey.

32oz bottle. Pours an amber color with fizzy tan head. Super grainy and sweet aroma. Sickly sweet flavor. Light to medium bodied with a super sweet finish and flavor throughout. It’s like pretty much every malt liquor.

Canned. Pretty gross. Didn’t even bother to pour it. Lots of malt not much next.
